The Lyrics

For anyone who's ever been left stranded at an airport due to "equipment failure", or flown in the airborne sardine can that is the McDonnell Douglas MD80
"Arriving at the airport, ticket in my hand
Knowing that soon I will be up in a sardine can
Going through security, taking off my shoes
Walk down to the gate and get those MD-80 blues

Boeings have more legroom, Airbus ain't so old
But if they had to replace them, American would fold
30 year old aeroplanes ain't what I would choose
Still that's all I seem to fly, those MD-80 blues

If I had it my way I'd take another plane
But flying on American there's never any change
Southwest never carry me where I need them to
That's why I'm stuck up here with them ol' MD-80 blues..."
